The two leading alternative venues in Holland will be curating a venue at this year’s Incubate. WORM from Rotterdam and OCCII from Amsterdam will host the week program at the Paradox venue together. Combining the strenghts of their network and the multi disciplinary focus of their organization, these venues and their respective artistic leaders will put together a piece of their history and contemporary views, both artistically and socially.

Worm from Rotterdam and OCCII from Amsterdam, two cool underground venues from The Netherlands, will curate Paradox during Incubate 2010 for a whole week.

Worm is the incubator for DIY-culture in Rotterdam. Worm organizes concerts, movies, workshops, master classes, festivals and different events. Next to that they have a movie working place, a sound studio, a shop and a very fast digital platform (WORM. station). They stimulate and help different productions like Dutch programs about national and international festivals and media publications.

The OCCII (Onafhankelijk Cultureel Centrum In It) is a venue for independent performances in Amsterdam. Their aim is to provide a stage and hospitality for non-commercially touring bands and to select the freshest sounds of the DIY underground. The organization is mostly run by volunteers and has its roots in the squatting movement. Next to the concert hall, there’s a vegan restaurant (called MKZ), the Anarchist library, theatre for children (Kinderpret), a bike workshop (Farafina), a sauna (Fenomeen), rehearsal studios and Art work spaces plus a big courtyard with a garden.

OCCII poster expo
Ever since the beginning the program of OCCII was announced with mostly handmade posters: xeroxed, silkscreened, but also a lot of experimental offset printing in the early years.

A two to three hour live radio play curated by the WORM soundstudio honchos with post, sub and pre- RadioWORM elements. Blurring the lines between fiction and reality, this showcase is a sparkly mixture of (un)intelligible, intrinsic radio blabber, profound statements and badly translated sayings from Dutch to English.

Wil jij Incubate van nog dichterbij meemaken? Wil jij coole artiesten een slaapplek geven? Vrienden voor het leven worden met artiesten van over de gehele wereld, omdat je voor hun een eitje hebt staan koken? Tot diep in de nacht jouw cd-kast doorspitten met andere muziekliefhebbers? En daarnaast ook nog eens de eeuwige dankbaarheid krijgen van de festivalorganisatie?

Incubate heeft een goede reputatie wat betreft het opbouwen van een persoonlijke band met de artiesten. Dit komt vooral door de vele Tilburgers die tijdens het festival een logeerbed of luchtbed aanbieden aan een artiest/band. Deze persoonlijke benadering van de artiesten draagt bij aan de goede sfeer op het festival. Incubate is nog op zoek naar mensen die wonen in en om Tilburg en bereid zijn om één of meer nachten hun woning/kamer/gymzaal/zolder/ruimte beschikbaar te stellen voor één of meerdere bands/artiesten.

Natuurlijk zijn vrijwilligers altijd een onmisbare factor bij een festival als Incubate! Dus naast slaapplekken zijn we altijd op zoek naar enthousiaste vrijwilligers voor verschillende diensten. Binnenkort is er op de website een mogelijkheid om je hiervoor in te schrijven. Dus hou de aparte vrijwilligerspagina op onze  site in de gaten.

Voor aanmeldingen of meer informatie, mail naar Als dank krijg je natuurlijk gratis toegang tot het festival!
